For Teachers & School Leaders
Schools are the first civic institutions students experience as community members, therefore it is important that schools and classrooms build democratic systems and structures that cultivate a shared purpose and build bonds of trust.
Student Voice 360 Toolkit
The guidance was designed and driven by a vision for student voices and perspectives to be elevated as valued members of the school community. We aim to support schools in their efforts to build inclusive partnerships and include students as part of their school visioning and decision-making infrastructure.
The range of youth participation and leadership is dynamic and nonlinear, and can exist in multiple dimensions within individual communities. The following frameworks are introduced and expanded in this toolkit, and serve to support reflection, action planning, and continuous improvement:
What is required for sustainable, impactful student voice?
What are the opportunities for student voice?
How responsive are adults to student voice?
